    Pros

    Good benefits and products with strong brands.

    Cons

    Senior Management is out of touch with the reality of the sales environment. Key positions are not filled in a timely manner. Management has a bullying style of leadership. Senior Management uses the same rhetoric over and over with no action behind the words. The are viewed as hyporcritical. Very risk-averse and conservative. HR works for management and not the employees. Colgate is a good news company and honesty is not encouraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to make some changes in key management positions to bring a fresh perspective and a 21st century style of management back to the US Company. Let HR work for the employees and separate them more from the opinions of senior management's bias and influence.

    Pros

    Its a very strong global company with a great reputation. Additionally, although sustainability is new to CPG, over the years we have been quite sustainable considering we were meeting cost savings objectives.

    Cons

    If you work within Finance or Marketing there is a lot of career growth. If you are in Global Design, there is a glass ceiling almost no one penetrates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be a mentoring and growth program combined where some one is mentored and guided on their career path.
